was just looking at the ceiling hoping my president would call. that's the kind of energy you have to put in. >> martin what about the republicans? let's talk about our party right now. you look at the numbers, not good. the president, the 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. we are a party that seems to be shrinking. how do we reverse that trend? >> well you spend enough time in the desert you find water. you lose enough you begin to sort of get some sanity. i think there's been some moves over the last couple of weeks that show that we're making some progress on this last budget deal looking forward. i think there's some progress. i think republicans are starting to show movement. we're making progress on the immigration front. i think there's something to be optimistic about. >> all right. let's try and be optimistic david gregory, while also being realistic. looking ahead to the next four years which really is the next two years, if you considered midterms, where it all potentially ends and the president's ability to get something d
